This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes If community and/or website membership services are provided on the Website (collectively the "Community"), then user profile information including members' pictures and first names may be displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction within the Community. Where applicable, email addresses may be used for the purposes of inviting new friends to join the Community, to add users to members' friends' networks, and to send notifications related to the Community. With the exception of inviting friends, adding friends, and notifications, a user's email address is not shared or displayed to people on the Website or within the Community. Users within the Community will communicate with each other in the Community without disclosing their email addresses. To facilitate searching and finding friends and acquaintances within the Community, the Community may allow users to search for other members using first and last name, email address, and schools and/or companies where users may have attended or worked.
PIC may also use a user's email address to send updates, a newsletter or news regarding the Website or related services. Users may choose not to receive email of this type by changing their opt-out preferences using the mechanisms provided by the Website.

Invitations and Other Communications to Non-members
Community and/or Website members can invite friends to join the service by sending invitation emails via the Website's automated invitation system. PIC may store the email addresses that members provide so that the respondents may be added to the friend's list of the member sending the invitations, and also to send reminders of the invitations. PIC does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations, or invitation reminders. Recipients of invitations from PIC may contact PIC to request the removal of their information from our database.
To the extent such functionality is made available, Website members may also store email addresses of people they know in their internal Community address book and may also choose to send invitations and other communications to those addresses.
Chat Rooms, Journals and WebLogs, Message Boards, Classifieds and Public Forums
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to Journals, Blogs, Message Boards, Classifieds or any other Public Forums that that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.

PIC member accounts are secured by member-created passwords. PIC takes precautions to insure that member account information is kept private. PIC uses reasonable measures to protect member information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of member account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.
